For starters today, we have an acrylic painting of a famous singer. The details on this work are simply amazing, you can easily tell that the artist put in a lot of time to perfect this artwork! The shading is also on spot, making this one incredible piece. Great work @emilycloudybloom!

Hello! Couple days ago I finished my painting based on video from BTS final concert in Seoul.
I love this band so painting one of its member was very enjoyable. It took me about 5-6 hours. -@emilycloudybloom

Hara Zi | "Tell Me" | Dance Music Video

Our second post is creative, beautiful to watch and all in all spectacular. When you fuse an amazing dancer with an incredible photographer this is what you get. I'm clueless about dancing and can't really comment on it, but I promise you that you will enjoy the video. Great work @jalentakesphotos!

Here it is folks! New dance music video featuring my good friend Hara Zi with music by Usher. As always it's a pleasure linking up and creating with Hara and this time was no different.

As with the "Beast Coast" music video, I faced problems with this video when it came to the actual recording. Shot on a Red Scarlet-MX with vintage M42 Lenses(My favorite lenses outside of the LOMO OCT-18 series) and edited in Davinci Resolve.This video tested my ability to create a "vibe" with the editing. This just was my second day shooting with this beast of a camera. Like i said before I'm used to shooting on my GH4 dslr but I felt the need to step up my game and use a true cinema camera. And as with the "Beast Coast" video my lens options on this camera were limited as I'm used to using about 6 different prime lenses, for this shoot, again, I only had access to 3 lenses. The reason being most of my lenses are adapted for my little GH4 dslr which has a micro four thirds lens mount, and not a big cinematic camera like the Red which has either a PL or EF mount. And lastly and most stressful of all, the microphones on the camera didn't work!

But this time around I had control over the lighting which I couldnt be more thankful for.

Hope you enjoy! -@jalentakesphotos

This author has posted tons of music related video and I warmly recommend anyone interested in that field to check them out, you won't regret it!

This isn't just a great looking photograph, it's much more. It's an excellent example of photographers creativity and dedication and that's what counts the most. The picture itself is mesmerizing, looks like it came out of a video game. Stunning work @rod.evans.visual!

After a couple of hours light painting in various spots around the Byron Lighthouse recently, I was ready to head home but then I remembered this little ocean-view balcony just down the hill from the lighthouse so I took my gear down there and had a bit of a play.

Tool used here was a green acrylic tube with a purple plastic tip taped on the end. Torch used was a Nitecore P26. Check out my instagram for pix of the tool. -@rod.evans.visual

Amaranthe - The Nexus | Guitar Cover

Next up we have an incredible guitar cover video and I'm not only saying that because I love Amaranthe with all my heart, I'm saying it because the guitarist did such an excellent job that you can't spot a difference between this song and the original. Amazingly done @frozenfury009!

Plant-Spirit Deer

And last but definitely not least, my easily favorite art post in a while, "Plant-Spirit Deer". I have to start by saying, this is INCREDIBLE. The detail, the construction, everything is spot on. I'm not joking, this is the first artwork I've saved and stored on my pc just to have it around, I like it that much. Amazing work @alnhart, I mean it!

  • Hi Everyone!

A few days ago I stumbled across the Art Explosion contest, and the theme was Spirit Animal, which seemed interesting so I decided to make something for it :) -@alnhart

This author is yet another brand new member from only 15 days ago and he already made his way to a Curie vote and my heart as well. I really hope to see many more of their work!
